Designed Interiors

Better Homes & Gardens
My dad was a home builder when I was younger, and I loved using his house plan books to draw furniture in the various rooms.  I remember at some point wanting to become an interior decorator (either that or a gymnast!).  Though I didn’t end up doing it professionally, I still love all things interior decorating.  We’ve owned our home for a few years now and it’s already gone through multiple “looks”.  I like to think of them as household wardrobe changes.  It’s so much fun to move furniture from room to room and change out pillows and decorative accessories.  I tend to get a little obsessed, but really just genuinely enjoy creating “new to me” spaces.  I love browsing through magazines like Better Homes & Gardens, Country Living and House Beautiful, for ideas and inspiration.  BH&G has a couple of special interest publications that are my favorite – 100 Ideas Flea Market Style and 100 Decorating Ideas Big Style for Small Rooms.  I really love this dining room - it looks so cozy and I could definitely see myself enjoying coffee or reading a good book while curled up on the banquette.
